UPDATES ON FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2011, DESERT BLOOM PHOENIX 4 & WEEKEND OF HORRORS



Just posting a blog to catch everyone up with what's been going on of late. Last Saturday, I participated in Free Comic Book Day, a nation wide event where comic book stores host signings and art events by illustrators and comic creators to gain new readers and benefit The Hero Initiative, a charity benefitting comic creators who've had health battles by helping them with their medical costs. I did a bunch of cool zombie sketches, and a fun Black Widow and Green Lantern piece. If you want to check those out, check out my TwitPic Stream HERE for the images with the tag #FCBD. I dug the Blind Mag from REPO: The Genetic Opera a lot.

That night, I then did some live painting at Desert Bloom Phoenix 4. Here's some video of my painting which I later sold. Most people seemed to dig it, including the fact that it seemed to be an unintended shout-out to "The Dark Mark" from Harry Potter.



This weekend, I'll be in Los Angeles, vending at the Creation Entertainment Weekend of Horrors at the LAX Marriott. I'll be at Table #53, where I'll be doing live sketches and commissions. I'll also have some exclusive prints, such as this DEMONS piece. I should be pricing it at about $20.00.

HISTORY OF MOVIE POSTER DESIGN at PHOENIX ART MUSEUM



On May 3, 2011, I delivered a talk on the History of Movie Poster Design at the Phoenix Art Museum. About 10 months earlier I had delivered an earlier talk at Ignite Phoenix #7 on the Art of Exploitation Movie Posters; that talk was in Ignite format; 20 slides 15 seconds a slide with 5 minutes to talk. This was a much bigger time window and I could focus on a historical overview. So for this talk I focused on Poster Design as it sprang from advertising and focused on several masters of illustration and looked at design influces. In contrast with my Ignite talk, this one was also 20 slides, but ran about 45 minutes. The crowd of 120 present at Whiteman Hall seemed to really enjoy it and I received a lot of comments at the reception following. I think these talks could be something really interesting if focused on different areas on design and I'd like to find a venue/form to continue them in for the future.

Here's the original talk that started it all as well:



O'Reilly Media featured my original Ignite Phoenix #7 talk on Exploitation movie poster art on the official IGNITE channel on YouTube the week of February 23, 2011, so they did a lot of cool post production work on it, including making my slide graphics pop up along with my puns in that speech, as well as adding a timer at the bottom which shows you how IGNITE really works as it countsdown to when my next slide will move, its pretty cool and it'd be awesome if all Ignite talks had this nifty feature. I had to fix the sound because unfortunately IGNITE's version didnt have the good sound quality of the original, so this is the best of both worlds.

IGNITE PHOENIX: AFTER HOURS - ZOMBIES AND OUR FASCINATION WITH THE DEAD

Back in June of 2010, I presented at Ignite Phoenix 7 on The Art of the Movie Poster. Ignite Phoenix is a local event in Phoenix that lets people speak about things they are passionate about to get share that passion and motivate others to act on their own. You present in 5 minutes, with 20 slides running on auto-pilot behind you. Its a great experience and being a glutton for punishment, I went for it again.

In December of 2010, I was one of the initial presenters for Ignite Phoenix After Hours an R-Rated version of Ignite. In this event, I talked about how I illustrate zombies at comic book conventions and what motivates people to want to become the undead, here is that presentation:
